Nonferrous metal alloys with a matrix of aluminum, copper, magnesium, titanium, and other metals have been widely used in many industries. In most cases, the failure of these nonferrous metal alloys is attributed to their corrosion. Some nonferrous metal alloys with high corrosion resistance are currently being developed, and the corresponding corrosion behavior and mechanism become of importance regarding application. For this Special Issue, we welcome submissions on studies being carried out in this field which are focused on the design of novel nonferrous metal alloys with good corrosion resistance, the corrosion behavior and mechanism of nonferrous metal alloys in different environments, methods for the protection of nonferrous metal alloys, and surface coating technologies for nonferrous metal alloys. Articles describing other directions within the field of the production of nonferrous metal alloys with good corrosion resistance are also welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Coatings is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
